MyStudentLet, Chichester’s only letting agent dedicated exclusively to students, is celebrating its first birthday in June with a special event for local landlords and businesses.
Mystudentlet was launched by ex-Chichester University student Catherine Faircloth in June 2010. “I had some bad experiences with agents and the standard of accommodation when I was studying in Chichester, so I saw a gap in the market for something more professional”, explains Catherine.
September has seen house prices drop for a third successive month as properties flooded on to the market, according to research.
